$5000 challenge

January 25th, 2006 at 09:11 am

I think I will keep my $20 to $5000 challenge on this blog, also. I started with $20 on Jan. 1st and as of yesterday, Jan 24th, my total is $786.23.

I am saving all my changes. Anytime I get grocery store savings using my advantage card, I take that cash and put it with my savings. I use the budget envelope method and if I over budget, I take that money out and add to my challenge money.

I have sold a few things and plan to have a garage sale when it gets warmer.
If my husband takes on an extra "fix it job" I count that because he does not do that often and it is just extra money.

I have debated if I should count interest that I receive on my checking and savings account? Your feedback would be welcome!

    I just read your bio on the side of the page...I never would have guessed that you're 60. You come across much younger!

    Thanks, I feel much younger, but I get social security the end of this year. $400 isn't enough to live on, so I will keep on saving!! P.s. I have long blond hair, drive a vette and love fast dancing!!
